What to bring?

  • Swimmers
  • A beach bag including a towel, hat and shoes.
  • A jacket during winter to protect you from wind and for warmth after snorkelling.
  • Cameras in a waterproof case or Tupperware.
  • Cash for water, soft drinks, beer, fruit juices and chocolates for sale on board.
  • If you have chosen not to have our buffet style lunch, please ensure that you bring your own as we do not visit any resorts during the day.
  • A sense of humour is always welcome!


Group Size

  • The semi rigid inflatable vessels are super fast allowing guests to experience a fun ride, adventure and education amongst the natural beauty of the Whitsundays. 
  • 32 passengers at most allows for personal snorkelling lessons and the pleasure of a small group.

About the tour

  • The Northern Exposure eco adventure is a favourite amongst avid snorkelers because it is the only Whitsunday adventure which includes two different snorkel destinations. Not only that, but it includes a visit to the stunning beach at Hill Inlet, north end of Whitehaven Beach, and a guided National Park walk to the lookout above the silica sand of Whitehaven.


  • The Southern Exposure visits both the northern and southern ends of Whitehaven Beach. Enjoy at least two hours relaxing on the world famous white silica sand, a guided walk to Hill Inlet Lookout and experience the Southern end of Whitehaven Beach. Snorkel for over an hour at Border Island, Dumbell Island or one of our “secret” snorkel spots, enjoying the amazing hard and soft corals of the fringing reefs.


  • The main difference between the two tours is that the Northern Exposure offers more snorkelling time and the Southern Lights has more beach time.
